Sean Blackman's In Transit Detroit ~ A monthly world music concert series
*recipient of The Spirit of Detroit Award by Detroit’s City Council - recognized for filling a cultural void in the city’s performing arts arena.

In Transit Detroit ~ Arab-esque
This month we'll feature Detroit's funkiest rhythm section with the sounds and aesthetics of the Arab world.

It's all set in the spirit and celebration of our diverse Detroit and how we can shine a light on inclusion through the performing arts.

In February 2016, Sean Blackman began hosting the In Transit Detroit concert series on the last Thursday of every month at the magnificent Garden Theater in midtown Detroit. He continues, spotlighting a different country each month through live music, dance, cuisine and the visual arts, creating a series where no two shows are alike.

Each month, we select the most talented international artists that are now living in Metro Detroit and integrate them with Detroit’s finest mainstream musicians. This cross-cultural approach makes it more accessible to a Western audience while still satisfying the audience of the featured country.

On Thursday, September 29th, we will spotlight the Middle East with In Transit Detroit ~ Arab-esque.

Detroit's Iconic World Music DJ Judy Adams will spin before and after the live set.
